This project will be my final year photographic project for a BA in Photographic Media from Griffith College Dublin. This campaign is to help produce 10 framed prints and a self-published photobook.
'No Crisis Here' is a commentary on the mismanagement of property and rental markets. It visualises the anxiety and vulnerability which effects everyone of us, and the lack of involvement and responsibility for the housing crisis by the government and local authorities in Ireland.
The money from this campaign will go towards the printing and framing of the final images for the Final Year Exhibition, and an initial print run of an accompanying self-published photobook.
I have been working as a photographer for over 13 years. In the last five years I have specialised in interiors and architecture. I always wanted to have a qualification in photography, so I finally bit the bullet and entered the BA in Photographic Media in Griffith College.
The risk and challenges ahead include finishing capturing the imagery, selecting the prints, choosing the ideal paper and framing for the images. I will also work on the layout and design of the photobook. I will have continuous advice and support on hand from my college lecturers and guest tutors.
The costs involved in printing and framing for an exhibition are quite considerable and beyond my means. In addition to the production of the exhibition I have to produce a photobook to be handed in with my final assignment and project. I will be covering the costs of the photobook. I am saving on some of the costs, for example I will be hand stitching the photobook myself.
See note all rewards will be available for collection at the opening evening of the Exhibition, Thursday 6th June, the time of the opening is to be confirmed. Other means of delivery of rewards can be arranged on an individual basis.
Thank you very much for taking the time to have a look at my campaign.
Whether you are considering to help with this, or are not able to, I would love to invite you to the exhibition, which opens on Thursday 6th June in Griffith College Dublin. See you there.
